Members of Our Limbs

The traditional and contemporary Frankenstein clown, Members of Our Limbs is a frenzy of absurd and eccentric clowning. It follows the antics of three sporadically violent and markedly edgy characters as they are dragged unwittingly through their own show. The patterns of the ordinary world mixed with principles and influences of clowning are put on an operating table and dissected. A suitable set of body parts are selected and a Frankenstein clown is produced like you’ve never seen before. It’s frantic, it’s visual, it’s skillful, and above all: It’s funny.

This is the premiere production from Kallo Collective and has received noteworthy reviews as well as invitations from programmers from around the world.

Non stop hilarity from this zany show.

Thom Monckton displays amazing physical skills in comedy timing.

The Kallo Collective was working with great interplay and timing.
